because we say in commerce anyway because you're going to use healthcare at some point. nonetheless, i'm not so sure that it will be very easy to make the case that anything else we regulate is "inactivity" but this could be the jumping off point for further restrictions and that remains to be seen so it is worrisome. >> so folks sort of can understand the larger arc of our constitutional jurisprudence basically from the new deal until now the capacity -- your capacity as congress to legislate and regulate -- >> i wouldn't say unlimited -- >> unchecked by courts by in large. >> yes. all of the major laws we take for granted social security, medicare, minimum wage laws, maximum hour laws. >> clean air act. >> clean air act prior to 1937 would have been declared unconstitutional as beyond the power of congress. minimum wage laws were declared unconstitutional. the court changed in the late '30s early '40s and has regulated interstate commerce to provide for the common defense and to tax for the wealthier -
is starting a new tv channel. god help us all. >> hello. i'm herman cain. they think we are stupid. we the people are coming. and we want our power back. >> i don't know about that we're not stupid slogan. you might want to rethink that. it's go time. now, you have seen it all over the country. you've seen it this year and last year. we've got droughts, heat waves freak weather events. there was a weather event the other day that knocked out power, i don't know what it was called. i never heard of it before. apparently it zooms in a straight line and knocks everything out in its path. what in the world is going on? i got an answer for you. it is called climate change. we show you the numbers because weather doesn't equal climate but when you see it in its context, you'll understand. let me show you the different things. heat waves droughts, storms, flooding widespread wildfires. you've seen the wildfires throughout. again, it is overall trend right? so let's go to what happened in 2011. here's a piece. >>
poster of the president. if you have anything to be posted to us, send it to us, thanks for joining us have a great night. see you tomorrow 3 s." we've got a great show ahead for you tonight. mitt romney goes racially. >> it's a very strange and in some respects foreto the american experience type of philosophy. >> cenk: i wonder what he meant by that. i give you four more quotes just like that. and then we've got massive street protests in the happiest place on earth. >> the police are moving in. all of a sudden anaheim where disneyland is has become a bit of a ticking time bomb. protests after protests. cops shooting civilians. it's getting ugly over there. we'll show you what is happening. speaking of ugly, one of the world's worst pranks shows how divided the middle east is. [ bleep ] [ bleep ] [ bleep ] >> cenk: that's a gut wrenching story. really important. we'll talk about all that. anybody know what time it is? anybody? oh right go time. >> cenk: all right, so mitt romney has been playing defense a lot. release your tax returns off-shore banks accounts. the team has decided
stands up and tell us what they're going to do about it. >> eliot: i'm joined by john rosenthal and and alex seitz-wald. >> eliot: we'll go through a few days of guns, gun control how we should change laws, and then the issue disappears. what in your view should we do, and how do we go about doing it? >> well, what we should do in this country is require congress to find its backbone instead of just trying to extract as much special interest money as possible from the gun manufacturers and the gun lobby and institute uniform national law. the only uniform national law that exists today is that there is no mandatory background check for all gun sales unless you go to a gun store. so congress says it is perfectly okay for criminals al-qaeda hezbollah, gang members to go to u.s. gun shows, 5,000 a year, 33 states, no background check no i.d. required. nobody should be surprised when they hear that 83 more people died yesterday today and every day. 105 american--i'm sorry, 150 americans shot every single day. if you added up the americans killed by firearms in 30 years it is more th
's companies were pine easier of shipping u.s. jobs overseas. >> romney's campaign has rejected those claims and yesterday came out with an ad of their own called "no evidence". >> when a president doesn't tell the truth, how can we trust him to lead? the obama outsourcing attacks misleading, unfair and untrue. >> you might notice both of those ads site articles from the washington post that were both published on the same day. one saying bain capital invested in companies that shift jobs overseas. the others saying the president's outsourcing attacks are unfair and untrue. so what's the deal here? did romney shift jobs overseas? or didn't he? well, now the question is: when did romney really leave bain capital? much of theous sourcing happened after 1999 when romney says he left to run the olympics but according to a new boston globe report romney's sec reports list him until 2002. his camp insists he left in 99. that quo mean he lied on his sec forms. that's a felony. his campaign asked the globe to correct the question. the groen said no. we will have to wait as
-american families. nor any middle class families for that matter. tell us how cutting income tax rates for the wealthiest is going to help most african-americans. or voter i.d. laws, mitt, your silence on that mattered before the naacp when they're focusing on that is deafening. especially back in april you sided with pennsylvania republicans who wanted to disenfranchise voters. and you say you want to end obama-care, which as today's boos may have indicated is actually really popular with african-americans. among other things ending obama-care would make it harder for black women who are most likely to die from breast cancer than white women it makes it more difficult for them to get free screenings. let's be honest, mitt. i know that's hard for you but today's naacp appearance was not really an attempt to win over black voters. this is an attempt to make yourself look more either inclusive to independents, but perhaps more importantly this was an attempt to get fox news some video of angry black people booing at you. and that is today's not-so-secret lie. coming to us from houston th
to talk, giving us a call at 866-55-press. we are used to mitt romney telling us how rich he is. now, it's ann romney's turn on good morning america, yesterday, she said mitt wouldn't release any more of his tax returns because, you people have all you need to know. you people. >> that's us. unlike, them, rich people. hey, talking a lot about that this morning and a whole lot more. we start out by getting today's latest, the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning, lease a. >> good morning, bill. good morning, everyone we have breaking news for you out of colorado where a masked gunman has opened fire at a movie theater at the premier of the dark knight. fourteen are dead and 50 are injured. it sounds like police do have a suspect in custody. this is out of yourora, colorado. we will bring you more details out of that shooting as they are released. >>> in blurbs politics, a new report from the boston globe is giving more details after romney kept ties with bain after 1999. shortly after leave to go run the olympics, h
? >> relax, mitt. this isn't about you. besides, you are basically with us on this one. now, this is about republican governors and congressmen threatening to deny healthcare coverage to millions of americans for no other reason than it's an election year. do you want to play politics? fine. let's play politics. >> the best thing we can do is get help people get good-paying jobs. >> that's louisiana governor bobby jindal who has vowed not to implement the now officially constitutional affordable care act. and, of course, he is not alone. according to think progress 10 republican governors, a group i am calling the governos are refusing to expand medicaid as called for in the affordable care act by failing to sign on, these governos will deny healthcare coverage to about 3 and a half million people and forfeit billions of dollars and they all claim they can't afford to do it. but here an inconvenient truth that they don't want you to know: the federal government will pay for 100% of the medicaid expansion costs for the first three years, and af
lines, above race, above any of the old political decisions that all of us are still involved in. he hasn't gotten it. >> eliot: he would become a transcendent figure if unemployment got down to 5%. we often look backwards and impose our image of what a president is. something we can't see at the time and we cannot appreciate until later on. here's the other thing. mitt romney, whatever one might think about him, i don't think there's anybody who says he is eloquent or has been in this campaign, one who has crafted an image for us. what he thinks the economy would be. is this his moment? i look back to the '08 campaign when president obama not then president obama of course was being beaten up by reverend wright. he gave an eloquent speech about race. even those who didn't vote for him said that was a superb articulation of how we address the issue. can either romney or obama give an equivalent speech about the economy that lets us see a vision for where we can go. guy hasn't done it yet. >> he's been articula
.e.o. number seven. she gives us five clues for what it takes to succeed in the valley. we'll decipher what it really means. so often we talk about how we can make technology for accessible to everyone. there's one place we can do more using the internet to help government become more open and accountable. ellen, thanks for being on the show. >> happy to be here. >> let's jump right into this, openness transparency and actability addressing those three issues is money in politics. this presidential election is just a perfect example the absurdity of money and what it's already played in terms of its impact and outcomes of the primaries and in the presidential contest. what can we do to address this fundamental issue. >> first we have to understand that transparency of political money is the kind of democracy without that, we know nothing about what's really going on, the kinds of influences that the money might exert on the people who are behind the candidates. the turn of the century the turn of the last century, 1907 we've had a firm rule about clear and complete disclosure of campaign co
fraud. you're supposed to represent us, your audience. not those guys. unfortunately, they totally misunderstand that. funny enonononononononononononononononononononononononononononono eliot spitzer is next. >> eliot: good evening i'm eliot spitzer and this is "viewpoint." the latest attempt by democrats to stem the flood of secret donations, polluting our political campaigns has gone down to defeat in the senate. twice. once monday and once this afternoon. the disclose act they championed would have simply required nonprofit groups to disclose the names of donors contributing $10,000 or more. business lobbies including the u.s. chamber of commerce fought back claiming disclosing their contributions could expose them to and i quote retaliation against unpopular or unfavorable political views which also infringes constitutional rights. in other words the rights of corporations to make secret donations to secure influence ranks above the rights of citizens in our democracy to know who's influencing the people
swim, birds fly and anderson cooper is gay. that's what he said yesterday. that's what he told us but who cares? the big question is not whether or not anderson cooper is gay it is whether or not he can get good enough ratings to save cnn. which i doubt frankly. at any rate, that's one of the things we'll be talking about this morning here on this tuesday celebration. but first, we go out to los angeles and get all of the latest today's current news update from our good buddy jacki schechner. good morning. >> good morning, bill. the president and mitt romney are both on vacation again today but "the new york times" is reporting that romney has made plans to visit israel later this summer. the confirmation comes from president benjamin netanyahu's office. romney is meeting with other israel's leaders and the president of the palestinian authority during the short less than two day trip. it is an attempt to reach out to jewish voters and evangelical christians and beef up the foreign policy credentials which are a lit
